NEW CHALLENGEEriksen made it clear at the end of last season he was open to the idea of a new challenge, and it is suggested he has his heart set on a move to Real Madrid or Barcelona.There is still time for those clubs to come in with a late bid for the playmaker – and the problem for Spurs is that because relationships with the agent are now strained, they are unaware of any moves behind the scenes.Pochettino is bristling with frustration at what has been going on at the club over the summer, with the Eriksen situation one of the biggest problems.The midfielder has started just one game this season as a result, and was on the bench for last week’s disappointing 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle.Latest Tottenham newsHARRY ALL FOUR ITKane admits Spurs must win EIGHT games to rise into Champions League spotGossipALL GONE PETE TONGVertonghen wanted by host of Italian clubs as long Spurs spell nears endBELOW PARRSpurs suffer blow with Parrott to miss Prem restart after appendix operationPicturedSHIRT STORMNew Spurs 2020/21 home top leaked but angry fans slam silver design as ‘awful”STEP BY STEP’Jose fears for players’ welfare during restart as stars begin ‘pre-season’KAN’T HAVE THATVictor Osimhen keen on Spurs move but only if they sell Kane this summerAfter the match, Pochettino suggested he had never known a more unsettling start to a season than the current one, a clear indication the playing side is starting to be affected.With a fully focused Eriksen available, he would be a certainty to start, but that appears to not have been the case this season.And the club are already seeing themselves losing ground in the Premier League as the uncertainty starts to filter through on match days.Christian Eriksen will only quit Tottenham for Real Madrid, Barcelona or Juventus… with last-gasp £60m bid expected TOTTENHAM have been left in the dark over the future of Christian Eriksen after the relationship between his agent and Daniel Levy broke down.Eriksen has entered the final year of his contract with Spurs and as things stand will be able to leave the club for nothing next summer.1 Tottenham are completely in the dark over the future of Christian Eriksen after the relationship between his agent and Daniel Levy broke downCredit: Getty Images – GettyTottenham have been desperate to get the 27-year-old tied down to a new £200,000 contract but so far the midfielder has shown little sign of wanting to stay.And the Guardian say the club is now completely unsure of Eriksen’s future because chairman Levy is no longer speaking with the player’s agent.It is claimed Levy has not talked with Martin Schoots for some time, and that has increased Mauricio Pochettino’s concerns about the possibility that one of his best players is about to leave.The international transfer window does not close until September 2, and Spurs know they are vulnerable to a bid coming in for the Dane.

WASHINGTON – A shipment of Iranian-made weapons bound for the Taliban was recently captured by allied forces in Afghanistan, the Pentagon’s top officer said Tuesday. It was the first time that a senior American official had asserted that Iranian-made weapons were being supplied to the Taliban. But Gen. Peter Pace, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said it was not clear whether the Iranian government had authorized the shipment. “We have intercepted weapons in Afghanistan headed for the Taliban that were made in Iran,” Pace told reporters. “It’s not as clear in Afghanistan which Iranian entity is responsible.” The shipment involved mortars and plastic explosives and was seized within the past month near the southern Afghan city of Kandahar. Markings on the plastic explosive material indicated that it was produced in Iran, Pace said. American military commanders in Baghdad have repeatedly asserted that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has provided components for powerful roadside bombs and other weapons to militants in Iraq. Iran has denied those allegations. Iran has played a complicated role in Afghanistan. When the Taliban ruled Afghanistan, Iran was a bitter foe. When the Taliban-controlled forces seized the Afghan town of Mazar-i-Sharif in 1997, some Iranian diplomats there were executed. Iran provided support to the Northern Alliance, which sought to overthrow the Taliban. It also cooperated with the United States in picking the current Afghan leader, President Hamid Karzai. But as relations between Iran and the United States have become more confrontational, some intelligence reports have indicated that Iran’s Revolutionary Guards might arm the Taliban in order to weaken and tie down the American military in Afghanistan. Bush administration officials have repeatedly argued that Iran has been seeking to become the dominant power in the Middle East. Some experts, however, assert that the Iranian strategy may be defensive. “The overall Iranian role has been to work closely with us to bring Karzai into power,” said Barnett Rubin, an expert on Afghanistan at New York University. “However, the Iranians believe the No. 1 threat is an American attack to overthrow their government. They may do anything it takes to make the United States and its allies uncomfortable there.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Senator Padraig Mac Lochlainn has written to Minister for Education Richard Bruton demanding an update on the three school campus at Buncrana.The school is to incorporate new schools for Crana College, Gaelcholáiste Chineál Eoghain and Gaelscoil Bhun CrannchaDespite assurances and promises that the campus would go ahead, not yet has ben acted upon. This is the letter from Senator Mac Lochlainn to the Minister.Dear Minister,As you will recall, I wrote to you last May urging that your Department prioritise the site selection for the new three school campus at Buncrana, Co. Donegal, incorporating new schools for Crana College, Gaelcholáiste Chineál Eoghain and Gaelscoil Bhun Cranncha.At that time, I advised you that there is growing anger amongst parents in Buncrana and Inishowen at this site selection process that has been ongoing since 2005. This is an extraordinary length of time and it is frankly indefensible.Unfortunately, four months later, a site has still not been agreed by your Department for the new campus.Minister, all of the buildings and sites currently housing these schools are no longer viable in terms of scale and design.I therefore renew my appeal to you and your Department officials to do all that you can to bring this matter to a satisfactory conclusion and I further appeal to you that following the site selection process, that you prioritise resources in your Department to fast track planning, design and procurement to reflect the 11 years lost already.Regards, Senator Pádraig Mac LochlainnSenator demands update on Buncrana school campus was last modified: September 21st, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)

Sprint made a big miscalculation when it initially released the first-day sales numbers for the new HTC EVO 4G smartphone, the highly anticipated Android device that has been positioned by many as the first real competitor to Apple’s iPhone. Originally, Sprint announced that the total number of devices sold on launch day was three times the number of Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre devices sold over their first three days on the market combined.Today, however, Sprint is saying its original report was in error. Sales numbers were actually in line with the number of Instinct and Pre devices sold over the first three days on the market combined, not greater. Although the original figures were erroneously reported, Sprint says the numbers for EVO are still good. Launch day sales are six times greater than those for the Samsung Instinct and twice that of the Palm Pre. In response to both the announcement and further research, BTIG analyst Walter Piecyk told Reuters that he was cutting his estimate of first weekend sales to 150,000 units from the earlier estimate of 250,000 to 350,000. He also said that calls placed to 20-plus stores indicated inventory shortages, so that number is not expected to rise much further during the first week of sales. New Number: Not Bad, but Not Breath-Taking… Still, 150,000 isn’t a bad number – it just might not be as earth-shattering as once thought. To put it in comparison with other recent smartphone launches, it’s better than the Droid, which sold 100,000 units its first weekend, and far better than the Palm Pre, which sold an estimated 50,000 units its launch weekend. It even holds up fairly well against the launch of the original iPhone, which sold an estimated 270,000 units, which was similarly on one carrier in one country (the U.S). However, the iPhone’s number didn’t include Sunday sales, which were on the start of a new quarter. Counting those too may mean that Apple sold as many as 400,000 units when the original iPhone launched. Later iPhone revisions, including the iPhone 3G, sold more than a million units during their first weekends, but those sales included additional countries outside the U.S. and multiple carriers, so it’s not as fair of a comparison. That being said, the new EVO has already attracted its legion of fans, thanks not only to its rich feature set but also its base operating system, Google Android, a mobile OS which offers several features the newly renamed Apple mobile OS, iOS, does not. Still, the EVO may not be the so-called “iPhone killer” many had hoped for, mainly due to battery life concerns that even has high-profile tech bloggers like TechCrunch’s Mike Arrington and Gizmodo’s Matt Buchanan recommending against its purchase.

DefinitionCorns and calluses are thick layers of skin. They are caused by repeated pressure or friction at the spot where the corn or callus develops.Alternative NamesCalluses and cornsCauses, incidence, and risk factorsCorns and calluses are caused by pressure or friction on skin. A corn is thickened skin on the top or side of a toe. Most of the time it is caused by bad fitting shoes. A callus is thickened skin on your hands or the soles of your feet.The thickening of the skin is a protective reaction. For example, farmers and rowers get calluses on theirhands that prevent blisters from forming. People with bunions often develop a callus over the bunion because it rubs against the shoe.Corns and calluses are not serious problems.SymptomsSkin is thick and hardened.Skin may be flaky and dry.Hardened, thick skin areas are found on hands, feet, or other areas that may be rubbed or pressed.The affected areas can be painful and may bleed.Signs and testsYour health care provider will make the diagnosis after looking at your skin. In most cases, tests are not needed.TreatmentPreventing friction is often the only treatment needed.To treat corns:If poor fitting shoes are causing the corn, changing to shoes that fit better will get rid of the problem most of the time.Protect the corn with a doughnut-shaped corn pad while it is healing. You can buy these at most drug stores.To treat calluses:advertisementCalluses often occur due to excess pressure placed on the skin because of another problem such as bunions or hammertoes. Proper treatment of any underlying condition should prevent the calluses from returning.Wear gloves to protect your hands during activities that cause friction (such as gardening and weight lifting) can help prevent calluses.If an infection or ulcer occurs in an area of a callus or corn,the tissue may need to be removed by a health care provider. You may need to take antibiotics.Expectations (prognosis)Corns and calluses are rarely serious. They should improve with proper treatment and not cause long-term problems.ComplicationsComplications of corns and calluses are rare. People with diabetes are prone to ulcers and infections and should regularly examine their feet to identify any problems right away. Such foot injuries need medical attention.Calling your health care providerCheck your feet carefullyif you have diabetes or numbness in the feet or toes.Otherwise, the problemshould resolve with changing to better-fitting shoes or wearing gloves.Call your health care provider if:You have diabetes and notice problems with your feet.You think your corn or callus is not getting better with treatment.You have continued symptoms of pain, redness, warmth, or drainage from the area.ReferencesScardina RJ, Lee SM.
